policy speech this week. romney is taking his message to the air waves. >> i think they want to do their best to keep the people of america from understanding exactly what happened. we expect candor, we expect transparency, particularly to terrorism. >> it's hard to understand how mitt romney thinks this strategy is going to work. romney was hammered for his initial response to the attack in the middle east. he blamed the president for sympathizing with protesters. romney is a 14-point disadvantage for terrorist issues. romney can't pick a strategy and stick with it. the campaign, they used to be all about jobs. the romney slogan was obama isn't working. but then all of a sudden, the campaign was about obama care and the slogan was "repeal and replace." then that didn't work so romney moved on to we did build that. while republicans spent a night at their own convention talking about the new strategy, but that didn't work either. so recently they went with "are you better than off than you were four years ago?" but now they are abandoning it for national security message. they are
, you brought up the libya thing and people aren't interesting. if romney had given a speech, had made the argument that this is part of -- simply a symptom of a larger development of a whole foreign policy in collapse, of the fact that the al qaeda which he was spiking the football for a week. al qaeda is back. we have got a new slogan for biden. which is bin laden dead. al qaeda alive. that was the meaning of all of this you could have attached the libya story. not as a conspiracy or coverup story. you would say the larger argument, the reason they had to cover it up. the reason they had to pretend it was all about a demonstration and video is because they can't admit is completely exploded. so if you create the larger context all the little events otherwise go uns inned especially by the media. you put them in context. would get a headline with al qaeda is back and we're going to be the target number one. >> i have a third point but that's going to have to be next week. >> bill: all right, charles. >> i'm not governor perry. >> bill: factor tip of the day what i'm doing early tomorr
you talk about as a party, mitt romney's in his acceptance speech at republican convention mocked the idea of combating climate change. he talked about obama promising to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. he mocked it, and it was a huge applause line. you have a republican party platform using scare quotes to talk about climate change. you have republicans in major positions of influence in the congress saying it's a complete hoax. that's totally out of whack with the kind of hostility of science you see overall on the left. >> so my response to that would be that, see, you're focusing more on the republican party and the democratic party, and that's not the point of the book. the point is to talk about progressive ideologies. what elements lead people down anti-scientific paths? we tackle myths like the idea that natural things are better, that unnatural things are bad for you. those are the myths we tackle. those have become pervasive in the culture. so that's why we don't focus -- we purposefully try not to talk about partisan politics. we don't make an ekwif len
to the speech. >>> republican challenger mitt romney taking a new stance on illegal immigration. as susan mcginnis reports it comes as he and the president are getting ready for their first head-to-head debate. >> reporter: more than 5,000 people packed the air and space museum in denver to hear mitt romney on monday. >> this is a great place to be. >> reporter: colorado is among the battleground states that have a large hispanic population and romney now tells the "denver post" he will honor temporary work permits for young illegal immigrants granted by president obama in an executive order in june. it's the first time he has expressed support for the act. here's what he said in los angeles recently. >> instead of playing politics with these children, i will pursue permanent immigration reform. >> reporter: the president's executive order is a shortened version of the "dream act," legislation to grant citizenship to these same immigrants under certain conditions. >> "if i were elected and the congress were to pass the "dream act," would i veto it? the answer is question." >> reporter: most
care about that. i found it quite shocking that governor romney in a speech took a set of positions about the middle east that will box him in in a way the candidates don't do that. it was a rather tight commitment that mitt romney made. i was troubled by that. i don't think it matters. you want to create a structure where elected officials are not wholly dependent or not largely dependent on a given donor. you want someone to be in a situation where the donor comes back and that really want a certain policy and a certain candidate can say get out of my office. that money is fundamentally important your campaign and then you have a problem. >> you can say this is complicated. under our system of government, the tie to go to congress. the of the one selected by the people and came up with what they thought was a law that would prevent corruption. five justices said no, we have a better way to do that. hen you car in the area of something that is as murky as this, the members of the legislature or the members of the court will have a better sense of what the dangers are of corruption
is that some people who were not romney supporters, david, would finally see him give a speech, and would email or say to me, well, you know, if he had been giving speeches like that all along. he was giving speeches like that all along. he is good. >> by the way, ask newt if he's a good debater. he's brilliant. >> sean: i'll be honest, if he doesn't hit newt as hard as he did in flat debates, i'll be debris. >> he has to refute obama's attacks. such as obama's comment, i didn't realize this economy was bad as it was. go back to 2009, he said it was the worst since 2007. every single thing obama says is refutable. >> sean: how many times has obama said we're in a recovery? getting better, better, better. >> you should be emailing this. >> you and i talk about this. in every recession before, recoveries are inversely proportional. the worst the recession, the greater recovery. here we are still not in a recovery. we're just barely netting jobs finally. >> right. >> we're about to have another recession. >> gas prices are up. >> sean: you are, ms. coulter, that he's going to win. you're dick morr
't do that in his connection speech. the other thing that's odd about romney's campaign right now is he has a upside down favorability. more voters are saying they have an unfavorable view of him than a favorable one. he's got to find a way to fix that. and frankly debates are not traditionally a great form to do that. debates have helped candidates like ronald reagan in 1980, or even barack obama in 2008. when the question was, is this new guy up to the job? people think romney's up to the job, they just have this other set of questions about him. so he's got to do something about likability. not easy to do. finally, he needs to get past this comment he made that obama has just been hammering on him. hammering him on. the fact that, you know -- >> 47%? >> 47% of the electorate is dependent on government, won't vote for him. he needs to find a way to explain that and get past it. that's a lot of homework for one debate. >> that is a lot. maybe too heavy of a lift. some people might say it's going to be very tough. president obama, as he's going into this, what are his objectives? >> loo
more than a few nasty attacks from supporters of both the president and mitt romney. but some neighbors near virginia are out raged at one anti-obama display. they say it crosses if line into racism. wendy rigger here now with more. >> this is freedom of speech in craig county, virginia. a man named cur tisz caldwell has put up a statue of a monkey wearing a mask of the president's face. he told our sister station his only message is that another four years of the president would be bad for the country. >> not trying to say that obama is an ape or nothing. if i had a kangaroo, i would have put a kangaroo up there. i think we nd to get him out of office and that's primary thing i'm trying to say. get this man out of office. >> caldwell says he used a skeleton to mock the president in another display he had up four years ago, but the skeleton fell apart. he says he is fully aware of the anger he might insight and he said he doesn't care. he's full aware of his rights to put up the sign and statue. >> tonight, the white house is transformed to support the fight against breast cancer. the p
been talking about this on the stump speech. and i mean, tell me why for mitt romney the economy is not resonating with him more. when you look at the polls and our polling in particular, the president and mitt romney are basically neck and neck on the issue of the economy. a little bit of an edge for your candidate on the issue of unemployment. but why, with all of those statistics that you just rattled off, why isn't your guy, the business guy, doing better on that? >> it is somewhat perplexing given how poorly the president has managed the economy. there's been a lot of promises, and platitudes. but not a lot of results. that's mitt romney's shtick. he's about getting results, as governor of massachusetts and turning around the olympics. i think there's been a couple things. one the democrats got a little bump out of the convention. two, i think the president has done a good job on tv with some of his face to the camera commercials, making his promises. even though they're some of the same ones he made before, he sounds good. >> it's resonating -- >> now they're actually getti
'm not sure if the debate is the right place to do it. after the paul ryan speech, you have the obama campaign referring to the lies in paul ryan's speech and that's echoed by president obama's allies in the media. when you don't have the romney campaign's response robustly. for example, president obama has been running ads claiming that mitt romney's going to race taxes on the middle class. now, mitt romney has never made that claim. this is coming from a report making all kinds of arguments. and he's made all kinds of assumptions that the romney campaign has rejected. >> he's trying to close a lot of loopholes i know he doesn't want to close in order to make that true. >> also puts harvey rosen, you can also generate enough growth to avoid a middle class tax increase. there are a loft credible folks saying something else. it's a fact he's going to raise middle class tax. >> the obama campaign, david plouffe is a chris christie of the campaign saying their campaign is built on a tripod of lies and the president has said sometimes they just make things up. so it sounds like the democratic side
's aware of it. that's how cool and off the cuff he is. mitt romney, of course, not to be outdone he is giving a foreign policy speech next week after the debate. the two candidates are not campaign today. they're both taking time off for today only to work on their debate prep. of course, mitt romney is rehearsing with rob portman of ohio standing in for barack obama because really when you think about black neoprogressive democrat, who do you want to have stand in for that? rob portman. >> absolutely. >> john: this reminds me of the time that kniffin stood in for brown turned i feel good to i feel well. john is calling us from kansas city. good morning. you're on the "bill press show." >> caller: good morning. >> john: what a pleasure. >> caller: i'm in kansas city kansas. >> john: right on. i have family there. >> caller: great. your question is there any way romney can win? my answer is yes and how? it would be stealing the election. >> john: amen. >> caller: how did they win in florida in 2000. a lis
a seasonal figure of speech. in the case of this president, we're not. he's way, way over in terms of the policy. governor romney without doubt understands that our country is exceptional. he recognizes the role we've played in the world. he believes the world is a better place if we're a participant in that world, and recognizes that it is not for us to go around the world apologizing and ringing our hands. what's called the arab spring is something happening in the islamic world. it's not arab only, because it's happening in a good many other countries as you know well. it's not spring, but it's summer and fall. it's going to be winter. it is a significant shift on the part of a lot of people in a lot of countries, who are encouraged and see the rise of islamist nonsecular forces in those countries. that is not in our interest. >> greta: mr. secretary, always nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. >> greta: straight ahead, why is the obama administration telling companies to break the law? how can the president justify this? making matters worse, the president is promising to pay th
relationship with the u.s. the u.s. state department has not responded to the speech. >>> 5:39. to politics, tomorrow is the big day the first debate between president obama and republican presidential candidate mitt romney. candidates will spend the day getting ready for the event in colorado. the president holding no rallies yesterday but he did visit a campaign office in henderson, nevada, delivered pizzas there, by the way, not far from where he and his staff have been strategizing. romney spoke to supporters in denver. >> this president is taking us on a path that's not working. he is making us more and more like europe. i don't want to be like europe. europe doesn't work in europe. >> at the university of denver crews are putting the final touches on the arena making it into a debate set. yesterday 92 university students learned their names were drawn from a lottery for tickets to the big debate tomorrow night. you won't need a ticket. just tune in here and watch the debate on cbs 5 beginning tomorrow night at 6:00. all eyes, an hour and a half, should be good. >>> 5:40. another apple
. romney, i was in new york last week, and he performed beautifully. unfortunately, nobody really showed up to cover it. he did two speeches, one at the clinton global initiative and one at that education forum. he was amazing. i was like where was that guy during the whole campaign? >> gretchen: interesting. >> if that's the romney that shows up, romney is going to smoke obama. if that's the romney. >> reagan did it just right. >> exactly. >> if romney does that, if he can capture a bit of that reaganesque quality, then you're going to see those polls turn around very quickly. >> bill, i was going to compliment you and you didn't let me. the reason o'reilley is popular is not because you're not tough. you are tough. but you also bring the facts in and you bring in analysis to the people that they can say, gosh. even if i don't agree with him, i respect his point of view. that's what romney needs to do. >> brian: you always end on a positive note. please say something nice to laura. >> we love laura. are you kidding me is it i have to say, we have some of the best debates in television. not
in tomorrow's speech -- in tomorrow's debate, i should say, and speeches throughout the next 35 days from -- >> absolutely. >> -- both the president and vice president? >> absolutely. and they should. as your other guest said, this was a window into governor romney's basic core of beliefs, into his political soul. same thing with paul ryan. they can try to make it up and say, i'm going to care about all americans and i gave them all health care in massachusetts. but that's campaign rhetoric. the american people understand when they hear politicians talking on the campaign trial. but this was a window into their soul. and what was so shocking about governor romney was that he's totally wrong. that 47% is about 70 million americans. 42 million of them, rev, earn less than $19,000. they work, many of them two, three-part-time jobs. they make less than $19,000 in a desperate attempt to feed their family. you tell me someone with three jobs isn't willing to take personal responsibility, wants entitlements? they work like dogs and they're not making money. it's an insult to hard working america
the real speech. so we're going to go back to charlotte to the dnc. >> sure, sure, mitt romney loves our lakes and our trees. he loves our cars so much they even have their own elevator. in romney's world, the cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft. sure he's made a lot of money. good for him. or maybe i should say good for him. president obama with the auto rescue, he saved more than one million american jobs. but it wasn't just michigan. hey, hey, hey. in florida 35,000 jobs ohio. manufacturing is rebounding. why? and on your ballot, the d is for drive forward. the r is for reverse. in this election we are drive ing forward, not back. let's reelect the great president barack obama. >> that is just the most fantastic thing i have ever seen. >> you have to appreciate a speaker who signs the speech while she's delivering. orally. we are driving forward. >> that was incredible. >> you worked with her. >> i worked with her. that's not the jennifer gramhome i knew. >> maybe she was just excited. >> clearly. >> tomorrow morning on this very program, bob woodward and mika's dad. >
by a five to for decision says its free speech. it's not interesting that money is free speech? said noticing this floodgates unleashed, spent hundreds of millions of dollars while the republican campaign is going on, vilifying that romney as unfavorables thereof. i can assure the unfavorables as the caveats went on. i think that may have also contributed a lot to this polarization going on. the hundreds of millions of dollars spent or 4 billion or 9 billion, 70% of it is on negative advertising on both sides. obviously that's going to have on the electorate. all i can ay is that there is polarization. so i won't go revise history, but i believe there will be major scandals, major scandals in the history of this country is corruption, reform, corruption, reform. there's going to be major scandals because there's too many billions of dollars marching around our political campaigns than i hope we will reform after that. [applause] >> the polarization you're talking about is also true if you just look at the numbers, when you all were in the house, to commit three, four -- >> right out
the same point down in florida the other day. governor romney heard me say that to you can't make change just from washington. and somehow we got all excited about this. he changed his speech and said i'm going to make change from the inside. and it got me thinking, well, what kind of inside job is he talking about? [laughter] is he talking about the inside job where outsourcers are writing the tax code? is he talking about the inside job where oil companies are writing the energy plan or health insurance companies are writing the insurance plans? is he talking about the inside job where a bunch of men in washington decide women can't make their own health care decisions? because it that the inside job that he's talking about, we don't want it. we don't need it. [cheers] [applause] change is not only going to happen when ordinary americans, it has to happen when ordinary americans work together with their elected representatives to make all of our voices heard. that is how change happens. so the question then is how hard are you willing to work for a? how hard are you willing to work for
? and if you look at his convention speech i'm not sure there is any difference. >> you know i think that his great challenge is the same challenge that governor romney faces tomorrow night, which is to be relaysable an rerelatable and likable. likability really does matter. gregg: you don't think people really want specifics, tell me mr. president how the next four years is any different. >> you know, gregg you have to balance style with substance. the fact is they'll have to run against their narrative in a time of great economic want. you've got a very, very wealthy man who is running. i'm not saying he can't relate to the poor but governor romney is going to have to do that. president obama is someone who is prove sore kwral and known for his excellence. gregg: insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. the president has been described in past debates as no drama obama. and that is a compliment by the way. columnist jerry sibe in the "wall street journal" says that governor romney needs to counter that by creating his own drama. i'll quote jerry e. di
. the conventions, those moments when the candidates get up and give their big speech to the country, that tends to be the period when the polls kind of start to get locked in, which is not a good sign for romney at the moment. there can be exceptions, but my sense is that the media tends to overplay the electoral significance of the debates, and the value of the policy explanations we get most of the time, as well. i do not know. fair and balanced is kind of a tricky question. we have run some things that i have edited about, essentially, the flood coverage of romany -- romney. he has not, legitimately, as anna talked about, even with the standards of a modern politician a lack of policy in his policy agenda. he is basically on apologetic about it. -- unapologetic about it. i would love to see the press beat up on him every day about it. at the same time, there has been a character logical -- characterological issue. some do not like him much. >> ask your questions, and we will deal with them. >> as you have mentioned, we need to make news interesting and attract readers, but you also mentioned
